We arrived as the doors opened to a tiny restaurant with two guests ho had never eaten sushi or Thai food. They were impressed. the sushi was fresh and the Thai red curry was excellent. Worth another trip to the Wind city.

A Friday night in Chicago, unplanned, can be interesting. We were trying to find a place for sushi and this place was able to seat us immediately. I'm game for trying new places. The sushi was quite good. 5 of us tried 5 different rolls and shared. There wasn't one that wasn't good. Glad we found it, glad they were... More

Came here with friends for some Thai food and sushi... Unfortunately, the food is super average. The curries are good value but the service was kinda meh... In addition, the music was a freaking mess. They continuously played EDM (swedish house mafia and the like) in a supposedly Thai restaurant? What kind of joke is that? A plus though was... More

We stopped here for some sushi. It was really good but we felt like the servers were rushing us. They asked several times to clear our plates before we were finished. More expensive than expected but it was delicious food.

Good place with other locations in Chicago. Ask for fire dragon maki and the thai escargot ( very different and spicy)

Went for dinner and ordered edamame, a Dragon Roll and Pad Thai. The edamame was mushy, Dragon Roll small and not good and the Pas Thai was bland. The atmosphere was cheery and there was outside seating. However will not go back!

I have been to this location a while back and it hasn't changed. The service was ok not amazing. I asked the waitress whether they can do rolls without rice and add cucumber and she looked at me like I was speaking another language. I said forget it and ordered the large sashimi plate, seaweed salad, and miso soup. The... More

We have been going to Butterfly on Grand Avenue for several years. We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, gathered with out of town family, etc. It is ALWAYS great! Everyone loves it, the food is fresh and tasty, the staff is friendly and helpful! We love Butterfly!

Portions were substantial, fresh ingredients, full of flavor and yummy. They are great about making substitutions and/or tweaking a dish to your liking. Ambience better for small groups

I have been going to Butterfly for several years now -- the value for the sashimi platters is amazing, and served with lots of daikon, carrots and beets.
